Now that it is colder I need the white truck to transport me and the dogs and the pigs food and waters across to the West Barn.
Of course I am usually carrying 6 x 5 gallon buckets of water. But yesterday was warmer and the faucets were working so I did not need to fill the buckets in the house. I could fill them at the barn. When we arrived I discovered that one of the cows had pooped in the water trough, so not only had I filled it up with the buckets then I had to empty it with a bucket, and then fill it up again. But I was happy. There is a zone you go into when you work like this, especially in the cold.
Some pigs just lay about sleeping as I worked!
Geraldine does not like to leave the truck and sometimes I drive around the circular drive just to give her a ride before getting out and lifting her from the deck and putting her back in the barn.
Geraldine sometimes flies along with the truck when I drive back – which is an unusual sight. Driving along with a peahen flying next to you. And a wee bit terrifying. Peafowl swoop as they fly, not a straight line. Terrifying.

I hope you have a lovely day.
